Weather because he skin has been "lightened" or whatever, all the handwringing over the Gabourey Sidibe Elle cover shows that there's not much you can do to make the black media


For Colored Girls... (FCGWHCSWTRIE) 2.87 +.76 +26.48%

While here have serious doubts about the movie we must admit two things: first, it's not for us. Second, the posters are pretty damn good. Possibly the most artful thing TP has been associated with (IMHO).


Reggie Bush (RB25) 4.1 -1.88 -31.44%

Ouch. Stiff-armed. The Heisman gives Bush "The Heisman".

Not so fast, Reginald.

*Yes, we're completely aware that a blog that attributes a negative value to something like P-Diddy changing his name from Puffy is in danger of calling the pot African-American. We're comfortable in that irony, though.

We're REALLY stretching the definition of "firsts" to get excited about with this one, but since we're fans of the show we're as happy that Kevin Sbraga's the first black winner of Top Chef as anyone.

Pity, empathy and disgust -- the emotional gamut we ran upon learning that Civil Rights activist/photographer Ernest Withers informed on Dr. King and others for the FBI. You can't judge until you've walked in the man's shoes, but this certainly isn't a good thing -- at all.

We really hope this is the last time that we write this name, but thank God Montana Fishburne is out there seeking help. Seriously.


Mike Vick

Can you say "quarterback controversy" in Philly?


Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Ducking/issuing racist statements about Manny Pacquiao? Allegations of domestic abuse? Money May ain't quite living up to his championship aura.

Kudos to the Washington Post for writing about a forgotten piece of American history, the Negro Motorist Green Book.
